Comprehensive EV Charger Solutions for Home and Business

We can install Level 1 and 2 EV chargers in your home, and commercial level 3 chargers where cities permit, including charging ports compatible with Tesla, Audi, BMW, Honda, Toyota, Mercedes, Nissan, Volkswagen, and more.

Types of EV Chargers:

  • Level 1 EV Charging Stations: Level 1 charging, or "overnight charging," connects to a normal 120 volt outlet. Level 1 charging stations are the most affordable and easiest to install, but some electric cars need up to 20 hours on a Level 1 charger for a complete battery recharge. Overnight chargers are best for light vehicle use. If you commute a long distance to work in your electric car, or if you combine daytime commuting with evening errands or driving for pleasure, you may find a level 1 charger too slow for your schedule and activities.
  • Level 2 EV Charging Stations: Level 2 chargers can charge your electric vehicle's battery in as little as 3 hours (charging times vary according to the make of your EV). Some Southern California cities offer rebates for these fast charging stations, so while they're more expensive than level 1 chargers in the short run, in the long term, level 2 chargers are the best choice for most EV car owners, especially when they factor in rebates and the convenience of much faster charging times. By law, level 2 chargers must be installed by an experienced, licensed electrician, because improper installation can result in a fire hazard or electric shock danger. In Southern California, no one has more experience and a better track record of level 2 charger installation than Trout Electric.
  • Level 3 EV Charging Stations: Level 3 chargers are the fastest chargers available, and can charge an electric car in 30 minutes to an hour. These charging stations are not intended for home use, and are installed only in commercial or industrial settings. You can find level 3 chargers in municipal parking lots, government facilities, or outside business parks.  

EV Charger Sales and Service Excellence

Not only do we offer reliable installation services, we also sell EV chargers for every electric vehicle type and brand. As a Qmerit certified and Tesla authorized company, you can rest assured that we will provide you with the services you need.

Additional EV Charger Services We Provide:

  • EV Charging Station Maintenance & Repair: Commercial Level 3 EV charging stations need regular maintenance and calibration. Trout performs this service for cities and businesses; in addition, we can repair, replace, or upgrade any charging station that's defective or out of date. While it's less common for home EV charging stations to develop problems, we can repair or replace any Level 2 charging unit that's malfunctioning or simply too old to give you the fastest, most reliable charging.
  • Tesla Charging Stations: Trout can install any EV charging station, commercial or residential, regardless of electric vehicle make and model. But the bulk of our work by far comes from Tesla, which often refers its customers to Trout directly and has worked with Trout for many years. Trout Electric is on a short list of preferred Tesla EV charging station installers.

Choosing the Right EV Charging Station for You

  • Miles You Drive Per Day: How many miles do you drive daily? Do you commute 10 miles each way to work or 40? And do you drive your car after work to soccer practice, to run errands, or to visit friends in the area? The distance you drive, the range of your car, and the estimated charging time of your EV should factor into your decision.
  • Electric Vehicle Mileage Range: How far can you drive on a single charge? Some cars may need to be charged nightly, while newer Tesla models may be able to operate up to a week without recharging.
  • Time It Takes to Charge: Charging times vary by make and model of EV; some cars may not charge completely overnight on a level 1 charger. Depending on the car you drive and the demands you place on it, a level 2 charger may be your only realistic option.
  • Other Charging Locations: If you have level 3 charging available at your place of work, and you don't drive much on weekends, a level 1 charger may be all you need at home. The time it takes to charge your car at home becomes less of an issue. But if you're a frequent driver, Level 2 may be for you.
  • How You Use Your Vehicle: Is your EV strictly a commuter car, or do you plan to use it "whenever," just like a gas-powered car? The average Californian drives just under 40 miles per day. In ordinary circumstances, a level 1 charger would be adequate, but on those occasions where you plan to meet someone after work and do something special, you may not have time to plug your car into the grid and wait overnight.
  • Your Electrical Infrastructure: Safety first and foremost! We test your home's load tolerance to determine the type of charger your electrical system can support. Every city requires a load calculation before a home charging station can be installed.
